Freshman Spotlight: Rohan Vaidya

Meet our 2016-2017 Freshmen Class


Name: Rohan Vaidya

So far, what has been your favorite thing about Austin?

 The incredible food. Definitely the food. There’s just so much variety everywhere, and you never feel like you’re missing out on anything. And I could eat the Pad Thai from “Thai How Are You” all day for the rest of my life and never, ever get tired of it.

In four years, what do you see yourself doing?

Taking a year before (hopefully) attending law school to join a volunteer organization like the Peace Corps or Teach for America.

Who inspires you?

I’d say either Bernie Sanders or Edward Snowden. It’s not easy to stand up for what you believe in or for what’s right, especially in the face of our current political climate. These guys did it, though in different ways, and for that I admire them greatly.

What’s in your recently watched on Netflix?

Family Guy. It’s a dumb show but I love it.

Fill in the bank. “Most likely to _____”

Leave his shoelaces untied. I never tie my shoes.
